Across this website, we also collect a number of cookies. Cookies are small unique text files that are collected by your browser from websites you visit which can be stored on your device.
The cookies we use on this website don’t collect or store your personal data (such as your name or address) so this information can’t be used to identify who you are.
Purpose and scope of this policy
Using personal data allows us to develop a better understanding of, and engage with, our stakeholders and in turn provide you with relevant and timely information about the work that I do.
The purpose of this policy is to explain why we process your personal data and your rights in relation to your data. We are committed to respecting and protecting your personal data and being transparent about what we do with it, in accordance with your reasonable expectations and applicable laws and regulations.
We appreciate your support and the trust you give us when you provide me with your personal data.
Our legal basis for collecting data
I will only use your personal data if we have a legal basis to do so. This means that I will only use personal data where we have your explicit consent, where it is necessary in order to perform a contract with you, to comply with a legal duty or right, to protect your vital interests, or where the processing of your personal information is in our legitimate interest and not overridden by your legal rights.
There are generally three legal bases under which I may process your data:
Consent: When consent is required I will always ask for your explicit consent to processing your personal data.
Contract: When you make a purchase from this website or become a member, you are entering a contract with me. I need to process and store your data in order to perform this contract.
Legitimate interests: In some situations I collect and process your personal data for purposes that are in our legitimate organisational interests. In doing so I consider that there is no overriding prejudice to you and that you would reasonably expect me to use your data in this way.
I do not collect information from the social media sites linked or affiliated to this website. If you have given me permission to do so or if you interact with us on one of the social media pages (for example, by liking or sharing my Facebook page or posting a comment) this information is not recorded in any form other than on the social media platform itself.
